Do I need a visa for Paris?

If you’re a British citizen with a valid passport, then you won’t need to apply for a visa to Paris or the rest of France.

Healthcare in Paris

British citizens should have their free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which can be used in Paris. This will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public healthcare centres or hospitals on your trip. However, it’s important to remember to still have travel insurance in place to be able to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the EHIC/GHIC might not cover, including repatriation costs.
